An application by Apple dubbed Ada now offers Nigeria and other African countries the opportunity to access and receive medical support.
The custom-built Artificial Intelligence engine was developed by their team of medical doctors and scientists who have made it their mission to make personalised health information accessible for everyone at a period in time where access to healthcare is limited.
Ada is now the top free medical app in Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
The app is created to help people check symptoms anytime, anywhere by asking simple questions without complicated medical language. Those that use the app can set up multiple profiles in order to manage the health of their family members as well.
All the health information for each user is stored in one place: previous assessments, current and past medications, allergies, among others – meaning it can be easily shared with a doctor or other health professional.
